Lise Bang-Jensen served as a senior policy analyst at the Manhattan Institute's Empire Center for New York State Policy and was formerly a reporter, producer and co-host of the New York-based public affairs television program Inside Albany.

She blogs at NY Public Policy Watch [1].

Lise Bang-Jensen joined Inside Albany in 1987. David Hepp, Bang-Jensen and others formed an independent production company after public television stations, citing financial reasons, cancelled it originally in July 1995. At that time, Inside Albany had been one of the longest running TV programs in the nation. Enough money was raised to renew the program. Inside Albany resumed broadcasting in 1996.

Lise Bang-Jensen started her career as a newspaper reporter. Her articles appeared in such newspapers as the Boston Globe, Empire State Report, Wall Street Journal, Washington Post and Ithaca Journal. She also contributed to New York Public Radio.

She has won numerous journalism awards, including from the NYS Broadcasters Association, United Press International and NYS Publishers Association.

On December 12, 2006, it was announced that Inside Albany was ending its run on December 31, 2006.
